Those who regularly follow my blog will recall that I made the commitment back in January 2013 to post one cookie recipe a month for the entire year. So, for ease of retrieval, I thought I would do a year-end round-up of all 12 cookies.
In January, just in time for Robbie Burns Day, I shared my recipe for Shortbread.
In February, with sweet Valentine’s Day, old-fashioned Sugar Cookies topped the list.
In March, Double Chocolate Chip Drop Cookies, made with a hint of stout, were ready for St. Patrick’s Day.
In April, thoughts turned to lighter, more spring-like, fare like these Lemon Spritz Shortbread Cookies.
In May, old-fashioned Cherry Winks proved they are still a perennial favorite.
In June, the no-bake Spider Cookies proved they are just as much a favorite today as they were when I was growing up!
In July, as we celebrated “Christmas in July”, the Brown Sugar Jam-Filled Cookies brought back memories of the kinds of cookies often found in grandma’s cookie jar.
In August, Chocolate Drop Cookies, were a hit with the chocolate lovers!
In September, crisp and light-textured Peanut Butter Cookies made it on to the cookie of the month roster.
In October, the substantial and tasty raisin-filled Plum Puff Cookies heralded the fall season.
In November, when the days turned cooler and thoughts turned to the sweet smell of cooking with spices, the old-fashioned icebox Gingersnaps made their debut.
In December, these Coconut Cherry Macaroons made a fine addition to trays of sweets and to gift boxes.
I hope you have enjoyed some of my favorite cookie recipes. Do you have a favorite cookie?
